Cameron plays the game. Again.

It seems it's now his turn to play the freedom card. Not much response from his previous blathering. Read here where Cameron says the right things about freedom. Against those in the UK and the EU.

He will single out what he terms the "politicians and public officials who believe that they know best how to organise our lives. They do not mean to harm us," he will say. "In fact, they mean to help us. But their ideas are out of date, their methods have failed and their advance must be derailed. In their desire to control, to regulate, to direct, the defenders of the bureaucratic age have over-reached themselves. They have gone too far. They have tried to do too much. And it has exposed the historic error of their ways."

At the same time he doesn't want to leave the EU, and so continue funding this monster that will grow unchecked and he wants to keep going on all the things that our current government is doing.

Actions speak louder than words. Cameron's actions show this is just another appeal to get elected and carry on the current policies. He needs to do more than talk. Let's see some party policies based around this speech. With the EU being in there as well.

'Of all tyrannies, a tyranny exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It may be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end, for they do so with the approval of their own conscience.' - C.S.Lewis.
